Eric Schmidt: Still Creepy…

Nobody Flashes

Ha! Here’s a good laugh on a Monday afternoon…Eric Schmidt

The ‘creepy’ Google guy, Eric Schmidt, thinks that Amazon should not be allowed to use drones to deliver packages. This from a guy who will BAN your conservative writings against democrats on his Google website. He said THIS in Fortune magazine, and I quote:

 “How would you feel,” Google (GOOG) chairman Eric Schmidt asked in the Guardian last April, “if your neighbor went over and bought a commercial observation drone that they can launch from their back yard. It just flies over your house all day. How would you feel about it?”

To which I grabbed THIS quote from Philip Elmer Dewitt:

How would I feel about a drone that could snoop on me? Probably the same way I’d feel about a company that monitored all my online activities — the e-mail I send and receive, the websites I visit, the places I visit, the products I buy, the YouTubes I watch, etc. etc. — and sold that information to advertisers.

Yes, creepy Eric thinks that only governments should have drones because according to him, terrorists could get one and use it.Jeff and drones

Ha! They could do that ANYWAY. If a terrorist wants a drone, or a missile, or guns, I’m sure all he has to do is hook up with the Libyan army (who have all those US goodies) and march across our border. And he could get all those things in Mexico!

You have to laugh when one of the biggest spy networks on the planet is worried about other people spying.  Why do I call him creepy? He also said this:

The Google policy on a lot of things,” he told attendees at the Aspen Institute’s Washington Ideas Forum, “is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”

The question is: What is Eric’s definition of creepy?

So therefore, every time I see Eric Schmidt I can’t help myself…I think of this guy:

  1. Where I live, we don’t call them drones, we call them moving targets.
